Euro 2020(21)

Recommended Posts

If England keep it tight like they have in this tournament, they'll win. Germany make dumb mistakes and are terrible at defending counters. The Portugal game looks like a bit of an outlier.

Spot on.

Thinking this morning - one of the last games I saw with my Grandad was the Semi in 1988 between Germany and Holland - Van Basten's last minute goal sending the Dutch through. If Germany win, that is still possible. 

Germany v Netherlands is a much bigger match than Germany v England. Massive hatred in the footy.

It is - I remember 96 in the City Centre and after the Dutch had lost to France, lots of Dutch fans telling us to 'fuck the Germans'! 

 

Don't think the Germans are arsed about England! They do beat England though, whereas you have beaten them quite often.

First time I'd ever been to Anfield that. We were sat in the Centenary right below where the scoreboard and control room are now. Great view for the penalty shoot-out at the Kop end.

They will. All that lot will. It's what they do. But they did it during the Rugby World Cup as well, and they'll do it during the Ashes. We don't fuck those teams off - I don't follow Rugby, but I fucking love Cricket and love the Ashes and love twatting the Aussies. I know loads of England fans who are sound - been loads out in the pubs in the City Centre, who have been sound. 

 

Every nationalist and racist in every country is going to follow their national team.

Nice! I never got to go to any of the games. I wish I had - would have loved to watch the Dutch.

I realise that. And I do get what you say and I don't disagree with it. But, this team has pissed a fair few of that lot off - which is why I am less dismissive than previous. I think my point is that national sport brings out nationalism. 

 

I don't care - come 8pm Tuesday I'll be mildly happy or mildly happy, depending upon the result.

At any given time England have always boasted some of the most fearsome attack in Europe in terms of individual talent---Lineker, Barnes, Owen, Gascoigne, Shearer---you name it. But never impressed as a unit. The Germans, or other top teams for that matter, seem to have better harnessed talent into more effective systems, exactly what I believe England have been lacking. What do our so-called jingoists have to say!

I think that is part of England's problem - those were not really that fearsome. Barnes really only in 88 - they got trounced. Lineker really only 1990 w Gazza - again not really much from those upfront - penalties aside Linekar had one maybe.

 

The other sides had Klinsmann/Voller/Riedle, Baggio, Maradona, Van Basten etc. around that time.

 

Owen really - 1998 too early, 2000, sucked as did Shearer. 2004 scored twice?

 

That was during - Ronaldo, Del Piero, Batistuta, Vieri etc.

 

England have never been as good as they think they are - this year included.

Shearer got the winner against Germany in 2000. If England had prime Shearer and Owen up-front now they'd still be also rans because its what England do.

Great time for England to play Germany and also a great time for Germany to play England. Both have been shite. Nailed on to go to pens.

Turned on the TV today at 5pm expecting the first knockout game to be on. Most disappointing.

 

Anyhoo, what we feeling?

No real surprises but I’m going to go for Wales, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, France, Germany, Sweden.

    • Well yes, everybody wants us to win trophies. Why would we be here otherwise?   The only summer we haven’t strengthened is after we won the CL but then went on to get 99 points and win the league.   I’d have liked a signing or two after we won the CL, but we didn’t so there is no point going on about it.   We signed 3 players last summer - one of which has been one has been regarded as the best in his position for the past 5/6 years.   I made this point on wages yesterday - we have some of the best players in the world in there positions and we’re winning the big trophies, do you not think we should be paying them accordingly?   Also, the club has a £120m deficit to cover at the moment but still has to pay those wages.
      So what do you suggest they do? 
        It’s very, very easy to look at certain points and make sweeping conclusions, but unfortunately money doesn’t work like that and a holistic view is needed. 
    • And they have signed  who ?? I sometimes think they live in another dimension.  
    • “Klopp without glasses is like… I don’t have a comparison but give me time and I’ll come up with one.”   I’ll give you a comparison here Dave, it’s like Tommy Cooper without his fez. It’s a disaster is what it is. He’d better sort that shit out once the season arrives.
    • I think they do. In the 90s and a bit later we would spend nearly as much as united in transfer fees but we would buy 4 or 5 average players like we were trying to build a team every window or at least thats how it felt thinking back. United just saw a weak spot in the team or a player moved on and they went an bought what they believed to be the best replacement for big money. Once you've built the top side its harder to improve but when that top player comes along who would improve you,  you buy him. We have loads of quiet transfer windows for me that should mean for examples sake if say Halaand is on the market we should be able to buy him without all the fans turning into bean counters and complete panic about the financial repercussions. We are Liverpool 19 times league champions, 6 times European cup winners we should be able to act like a Billy big bollocks in the market now and then because we don't go big or even medium most windows, the books dont need to be balanced at the end of every window, we can carry debt or profit into the next ones depending on the teams needs.   In my opinion we need a midfielder and possibly a forward if that means this window we spend more than we've earnt so be it, the next summer window we will undoubtedly sell one of our forwards and a few of our midfielders, the most important thing is the time in-between the windows the team needs to be competing for titles, our weaknesses need to be addressed so we can remain on top, everyone has different opinions on our weaknesses mine is way too many injury prone midfielders with the likes of Kieta and Ox who when given chances the rare times they ate fit don't take them.   FSG said the redbird investment meant we are were we should be if there was no pandemic it reset the losses, now the deal is out of mind we hear of the devastating effect of corona.    I'm not even arsed, the window is still open, if it ends and we've just signed konate and some kids I'd say they haven't done enough this window but I'll get over it as said a million times Klopp is our superstar and FSGs golden Goose.
    • For the Palace game i think we only had about 10k capacity. my Dad didn't have a smartphone so was told to pick up a paper ticket from the ticket office. We were told what time to go in the ground with the NFC passes and i think the window was between 1 hour and 15 mins before KO so that suited me. we went to the office to pick up his ticket and there was a massive spiraling queue accumulating outside for people whose NFC passes weren't working-scanning issues and downloading. The queue wasn't moving particular fast so a few must have missed KO. The pre season friendlies should help them get their act together but i wouldn't take any risks on getting to the ground late for the first few league games next season. Somewhere like the kemlyn is full of old men so i'd give yourself even more time if sitting there
